Custom repeat patterns

Cron is adding custom repeat patterns to both iOS and desktop apps. This enables creating unique recurring rules, like “meeting every Tuesday and Thursday,” for example. It also allows setting an end date to repeat events.

When selecting an event’s “Repeat” field, you will see a “Custom…” option at the bottom of the available presets. The custom repeat view allows you to customize day, week, month, or year frequencies. The week option lets you select the days of the week for the event to repeat, while the month frequency allows you to choose an exact date number or a relative day of the month (e.g., the last Wednesday).

We’ve also added the ability to select when a recurrence ends. You can choose an end option of: never, on a specific date, or after a number of times.
